A.M. Rotarians, their children, and Rotaract members from Eden Prairie High School gathered at Feed My Starving Children’s warehouse in Chanhassen on Feb. 27 to pack meals that will be shipped to Haiti in order to reduce malnutrition there.
The club also presented FMSC with a $2,000 check to support its work. This rounded out A.M. Rotary’s annual visit to the charity, which uses volunteer help to hand-assemble MannaPack-brand meals to reverse malnutrition around the world.
The club learned about FMSC’s supplementary food program in Marinduque, Philippines, where the club has boots on the ground: club member John Crudele, whose work with Risen Savior Missions has him making regular trip to the Philippines to help with this program.
According to FMSC, work such as the feeding centers in Marinduque leads to better child nutrition, which in turn leads to better abilities in school and an opportunity to break the cycle of poverty that persists when generation after generation is fighting malnutrition.
